Foreigners keen to invest in Bangladesh’s big projects: BSEC

Chairman of the Bangladesh Securities and

Exchange Commission (BSEC) Professor Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam today said

foreign investors are interested in investing in Bangladesh’s big projects

because the country is providing adequate facilities for the investors.

“Bangladesh’s economy is moving fast. The size of the upcoming projects is

thousands crore. It is not possible to give any solution only with equity

market. So, we are working on bond. The market size of the conventional bonds

and Sukuk are over trillions of dollars. They can’t find a place to invest,”

he said.

The BSEC chairman was speaking at a press conference at the BSEC

conference room after a roadshow in Dubai.

BSEC organised the four-day roadshow in Dubai from February 9-12 as part

of its efforts to attract foreign investors and non-resident Bangladeshis

(NRBs) to the country’s bourses.

Shibli Rubayat Ul Islam said BSEC showcased Bangladesh’s economic

situation at a road show in Dubai.

“In the roadshow, the investors wanted to know many things. We informed

them all things. They decided what to do now. Now, we get mail every day.

Some of them want to invest in mutual funds. They suggest us what kind of

correction is needed there,” he added.

He said BSEC hope that the roadshow will play a vital role in improving of

the country’s capital market.
